Me? I wouldnt give a flying rat's *** so long as my team wins the Gold/Cup/Championship.

In 2009, the Wings played the Hawks in the WCFs. Wings are up 3-1 in the series. If they win Game 5, which iirc was on a Thursday, Game 1 of the SCFs would start on Saturday. If they lost, the schedule would have changed to allot time for both game 6 and 7. Game 1 of the SCFs wouldnt have started until 7 days later.

7 days for a beat up, older team that just had its captain lose a testicle (or whatever), Cleary a bum shoulder, etc, etc.

4 days of rest instead of 1 day of rest. If the Wings lose Game5, beat the Hawks in 6 (Chicago was not ready at the time), I feel they would have won the Cup back to back.

Instead, they beat the Hawks, go up 2-0 on the Pens and fall apart from injuries.
